Recently we were asked if our cold-pressed dog food is suitable for pregnant and nursing mothers, as well as weaning puppies.

Cold-pressed dog food can be a suitable option for pregnant and nursing mothers, as well as weaning puppies, but it's important to consider some factors and consult with a veterinarian to ensure the best nutrition for these specific life stages.

Pregnant and Nursing Mothers: Pregnant and nursing dogs have increased nutritional needs to support both their own health and the development of the puppies. Cold-pressed dog food can provide a balanced diet, but you should look for a formula that is specifically formulated for pregnant and nursing dogs. These formulas typically have higher protein and calorie content to support the increased energy demands during this period.

Weaning Puppies: Cold-pressed dog food can also be suitable for weaning puppies, but it's crucial to choose a puppy-specific formula. Puppies have different nutritional needs than adult dogs, including higher protein levels and specific nutrients for growth and development. Ensure that the cold-pressed food you select is appropriate for puppies, and consider the weaning process, which involves transitioning from milk to solid food.

Consulting with a Veterinarian: Regardless of the life stage, it's always a good idea to consult with a veterinarian when choosing the right diet for your dog, especially during pregnancy, nursing, and puppy growth stages. A vet can provide personalised advice based on your dog's specific needs, size, breed, and any other health considerations.
